Ten Minutes by Tractor


Ten Minutes by Tractor is a winery, restaurant and cellar door located in Main Ridge, near Red Hill on the Mornington Peninsula. It all started in 1997 with three family owned vineyards, all ten minutes by tractor apart. Over the past 20 years, Martin and Karen have been the driving force that have taken Ten Minutes by Tractor on to become one of the leading cool climate wineries in Australia.

At Ten Minutes by Tractor, they offer a relaxed and intimate cellar door experience with in-depth tastings where you can discover wines that are a true expression of the unique qualities and character of their vineyards. With the recent introduction of Allis Wine Bar, guests can explore wines from the award winning Estate paired with a seasonal menu of crafted snacks and share-plates.

In the fine dining restaurant, Chef Hayden Ellis’s innovative menu is driven by fresh regional produce from local growers and their regenerative farm. This is overlaid with classic French training and experience working in some of the best restaurants in the world, including The Fat Duck and The Ledbury in the UK, and Dinner by Heston and Vue de Monde in Melbourne.

Guests can also book a selection of experiences that provide a deeper understanding of the Estate and what it takes to produce wines and a dining experience of distinction.
